A few years back, I sold/traded most of my acoustics.
I only wanted to keep one and that was my campfire Fender F-35.
Unfortunately, I'm a kijiji whore.
I'm up to five now, not including three project twelve strings.

Came with a fully compensated saddle.
Intonation is perfect.

Bonus found in the case compartment including the original receipt from Feb '06.

Sigh .. it's going to be tough choosing what to sell/trade off the next time around.

CONGRATS @laristotle !! Those smaller bodied Seagulls are really nice.
Does it have a solid cedar top?

You have THREE 12 string guitar projects on the go!
Preparing for Elmira 2018?

Thank you Dave.
It does feel/sound nice. Even with (according to the owner) original strings on it.
He played it for three months and gave up on it.
It's been sitting in it's case in the basement until now.
It does have a slight musty smell to it.

According to specs that I found on line. It's a cedar top.

You have THREE 12 string guitar projects on the go!

One has a bad belly bulge.
The other two; bolt-on necks.
One has a good neck, shot body.
The other has a good body, shot neck.
I'm going to try to make one playable out of the two.
They're different scale lengths.

It seems that I'll be getting a table at Elmira.
Unless I sell/trade a few through the forum/kijiji before then.

You have no excuse to be out of tune! :D
I need to get some fresh batteries for them.

And a tuning fork that I've been using for 30+ years. lol.
That's only when there's no one else around for me to say 'give me an A'.

Neither of the tuners or metronome work.
I haven't tried the pitch pipes.

Hows the folk size feel? I believe i tried a folk size acoustic in nashville and i really liked it. Previously i only had experience with dreads and whatever a GS mini is.

@Budda I'm now a total convert to folk size.

I now have 3 of that size..all Yamahas

Going back full circle as that size is what I started with...a Harmony that looked like this.....

OM's are like puppies, and peelers -- once you've had one in your lap ...

I like cedar tops. Course I'm just an acoustic slut.

Congrat's and enjoy!

Nice score!

On a side note, I knew someone who found a bag of something slightly illegal in the case compartment when he bought a guitar.

Nice one Laristotle. If you aren't too familiar with the S6 Cedar tops, be aware that if you pick hard and play hard, the scuffs will abound!! But it adds character and Mojo. These guitars are made to be played, not stared at!

Here's my S6 which I just took a pic of. I filtered the levels so you can see where the wear and tear is slightly hilighted:



I assume your Seagull S6 Folk is in pretty much mint condition considering it was sitting in its case for all this time. That shouldn't last too long.
